KPC Writers Group Prompt for February 2011: A Shadow

Life’s path meanders to and fro

Curving just so

To mountains high and valleys low.

At times the sun’s warmth may sear

And then the dark storm clouds appear.

Do we clutch our hearts and faint in fear?

Or do we reach for the Saviour’s Hand that’s near?

His rod and staff

Do comfort bring

As He leads us toward that eternal spring.

When shadows fall

Across our path

Do we fear impending wrath?

Do we listen to the lies of one

Who would tell us we are all alone…

And for our sins we must atone?

Or do we lift our eyes

And look upon

The Face of God,

Christ Jesus, the Son?

Who said we’d never walk alone,

He’d come alongside

As we press on.

Do you know how His story goes?

That He paid the debt

He did not owe?

His blood became the sacrifice

That carries us

From Death to Life.

Life’s path meanders to and fro

Curves just so

To mountains high and valleys low.

Which way, will YOU go?
